At a recent Donald Trump rally in Ford Dodge, Iowa, Republican State Representative Mike Sexton gave a speech that was both unusual and memorable. In addition to shouting MAGA slogans and talking about various conservative talking points, Sexton also attempted to lead the crowd in a “caucus” chant and ended his speech with a Yoda impersonation.
It’s not clear what connection Sexton was trying to make between Yoda and Trump, but his speech was certainly one-of-a-kind. While some people found it to be cringeworthy, others found it to be entertaining.
Sexton’s Unusual Speech
Sexton began his speech by throwing MAGA hats into the crowd and shouting various MAGA slogans. He then launched into a series of talking points that were familiar to Trump supporters. He spoke about his opposition to immigration, transgender athletes, and sending terrorists to meet their “72 virgins.“
Finally, he tried to hype the crowd for the upcoming Republican primary caucus. He shouted “Caucusing For Trump! Caucusing for Trump! Caucusing for Trump!” but the crowd quickly abandoned the effort.
The Yoda Impersonation
Sexton then ended his speech with a truly bizarre Yoda impersonation. He said, “In my time I have left. One of my great heroes, the Great Jedi master himself, master Yoda.” He then spoke in a Yoda-like voice, saying, “Mmm the dark side is very powerful in Biden. Crooked is he. Your country, he does not care. The force is strong in Trump. Win he must. Help him, you can. Caucus for him, you shall. For without his victory, all hope is lost.“
Reaction to Sexton’s Speech
Sexton’s speech was met with mixed reactions. Some people found it to be cringeworthy, while others found it to be entertaining. Regardless of how people felt about it, there’s no doubt that it was one of the most memorable speeches of the Trump rally.
Sexton’s speech was certainly unique. It was both memorable and cringeworthy in equal parts. While it’s not clear what connection he was trying to make between Yoda and Trump, his speech was certainly one-of-a-kind.
